this morning. this year's budget reflects a lot of hard work between city government and the people that we serve. we've met in every district of the city. we've worked with our elected city family. we listened to hundreds of community leaders and providers who help us deliver services to the people of san francisco. and it's because of this consensus approach that i'm proud to propose a responsible and balanced two-year budget that reflects the core values that we share in san francisco, values of fiscal responsibility, social responsibility, and investing in our city's future. when we began this year's budget, we began like many years before, trying to reduce significant budget deficits. but because we have pursued policies to control costs, grow our economy, create jobs and stabilize our fiscal health, this year i'm proposing a budget that protects our social safety net, one that increases public safety, and one that invests in our city's infrastructure at unprecedented levels. and it is a budget that significantly grows our city's reserves. this budget is being delivered as san francisc

new york city based companies that acquired $1.8 billion. it's just the beginning. if you think about san francisco and new york, the future couldn't be brighter because tech business is where the business is where people want to go. if intellectual capital is what your business requires, i don't think you can find two cities in the country that can provide that better than san francisco and new york. in new york we work very hard to bring universities like the university you have here just south of here that is so known for creating the world that we live in today. we are trying to bring that to new york and we have the cornell university, one of the great ivy league schools opening a graduate campus. it's not for undergraduates, right in new york city and they are bringing technology and cornell and it interest. it's really a powerhouse that will create jobs that we are already getting and columbia is also expanding there. engineering school is doubling the size of it and nyu is collaborating with overseas universities and we are attracting the big companies. google has a block squa

of the department health and i don't think the city for that. we have had some real innovation and thank you mr. mayor for supporting us also in some of our street outreach programs in some of the dreck services in on the both of you supervisors have seen the effects of that in your neighborhood. but once we bring these vulnerable folks into our services, we have to have a place for them to go in some of the cuts we are seeing are going to return those same folks to your streets and i asked one of my colleagues in the budget coalition to come up on this briefly with my. >> hi jennifer -- coalition of homelessness. last year the mayor and the supervisors invested wisely in trying to shore up our emergency homeless services. that's been tremendously successful at it has increased safety dramatically and we have backup numbers to talk about that. we also put in 1 million dollars in homeless prevention. in those efforts 1300 households were prevented from becoming displaced. this were seniors, families, people with aids, whole host of folks, only met 15% of the need. this is incredibly impor

with supervisor campos that we should get some clarification are the city attorney on our current sanctuary policy and how this new policy would interface with that. the last statement that i'll make is no one deserves to be homeless. i think everyone in this room agrees with that. i think i can say i don't think we should be making things harder for this group. this is the group we need to flush out for the precious few affordable housing units that we have available. i appreciate the passion that hsa has to get into emergency housing units. we need to dedicate more resources to get more units, more rental subsidies to get our families housed. that's the answer to this problem and it's not this new policy. thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you. i'd like to begin by thanking director ro r and his staff and i do appreciate the impetus behind these changes and we see an agency that's trying to maximize the use of its limited resources. i appreciate the the fact -- may be missing out on. i appreciate all of that. i do have concerns and one of the concerns i have is about the process. i want

are actually paying for it. narrator: cities and municipalities across the united states are now facing this funding gap, between projected revenue and projected expenses, as they strive to maintain water quality and meet demand. new york is the most densely populated city in the u.s. and over 40 million tourists visit the city every year. the 1.3 billion gallons of water required every day are delivered by a system of extraordinary scale and complex engineering. man: water is essential to the economic viability of new york city. reliable infrastructure and reliable delivery of water is a must. you have to reinvest in the infrastructure every single minute to keep it current. hurwitz: we have the stock exchange, we have the united nations -- failure can have a dramatic impact on the nation, and even internationally. so there's a really keen awareness that you always have to be fixing the system. things corrode, they rust. they get to where you turn them on and nothing happens. but it is so totally used in every nook and cranny, that making any accommodation to shut it down, to do someth

. more broadly how do you think san francisco compares and what are some of the other cities that are doing really well in terms of open data? >> i should be clear. when san francisco is third, we have a pact. i'll add to that actually. what's great in san francisco is there is not just going to be a chief data officer. there is also the office of civic innovation. jay's team, shannon's team. by having both of those units in place i think there is going to be a really powerful team. because you can't just open up the data. you have to do things like this, where you get the community together or you have people actually talking about it because the demand side, as we were talking about it, will be there because there is going to be someone there. there have to be people working with it who are getting out there. i think this is what this city is going to be really powerful. in terms of other cities doing as well, chicago is doing some really interesting stuff. scary cool stuff. they're taking 3 in 1 data, pothole request and crime report and matching it up with social media. t

the day, cared for and given access to city services and not endangering the families and the children and the tourists who come to north beach. polk street, and broadway, are old, hallowed traditional corridors for the city; they are not in the spotlight right now like a mission district or some of the new emerging neighborhoods but these are street i need not just bulb outs and bicycle lanes; they needed deep look at the economic conditions and the effect on the surrounding neighborhood. those are my ideas.

that hang out on haight street and the issue of homelessness? >> well, i think that's a real -- it's a city-wide issue and i think part of what we have to do is work together to deal with it, just like public safety. it's a work in progress. it's not something that you fix and you move on. it's something that you continue to work with. i mean, san francisco is an attractive place to people in general, so, we are going to get folks from all over, homeless, nonhomeless, and i think part of the balance is making sure that social service agencies that provide support to homeless individuals are available, that they have the resources they need, but they're held accountable to working and talking to folks who are interested in services. and the other issue is that, you know, we do have, sadly, an increase in crime in the area as a result of an increase in the homeless population. and, so, having a police presence, which we've had, park station has been really active in not only being out there and enforcing the law, but doing what police are not required to do, offering opportunities for service
